Performance

2019 SEASON


Welcome to the 2019 Season

This year the Conservatorium celebrates more than six decades of teaching and performance with a stellar line up featuring students, staff, visiting artists and alumni. We will launch the orchestral season with a performance of Elgar’s beloved Enigma Variations, followed by a year-long showcase of remarkable repertoire that concludes with Beethoven’s iconic Ninth Symphony. The Queensland Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra will also perform a blockbuster outdoor performance of Verdi’s Requiem. Our talented musicians will accompany a full cast from Opera Queensland in a spectacular concert at the Gold Coast’s Home of the Arts (HOTA). This collaboration is part of Griffith University’s partnership deal with Bleach* Festival — the Gold Coast’s premiere arts and culture event.

The centrepiece of the year will be a new production of musical theatre phenomenon, Les Misérables. This mainstage musical will feature the entire musical theatre cohort, accompanied by the Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra.

Our contemporary approach to research, music performance and artistic practice will also be represented in a range of special events, including NOW 2019 which features exciting new composers, librettists and producers.

Renowned conductor Johannes Fritzsch joins the Conservatorium this year in the newly created role of Professor of Opera and Orchestral Studies. Maestro Fritzsch will conduct our production of Mozart’s sparkling early work, La Finta Giardiniera (The Fake Gardener) and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.

Whether you join us for one of our free lunchtime concerts, a mainstage musical or an orchestral masterpiece, we look forward to welcoming you to the Con in 2019!

We welcome back Clocked Out and Ensemble Q as ensembles in residence. These ensembles provide a showcase for our renowned faculty, who are at the cutting edge of music making in Australia and the world stage. Professor Scott Harrison Director Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University

When Verdi’s dear friend, poet and national hero Alessandro Manzoni died, he was too grief-stricken to attend the funeral, so he composed a requiem to honour his memory. What emerged out of his sorrow is one of the most powerful works for orchestra and voice ever written. Sometimes referred to as “an opera in ecclesiastical vestments” Verdi’s gift for dramatic writing is on full display in this remarkable score for almost a hundred musicians and a chorus of over sixty singers. Asking the grand questions of life, it takes the audience on an intense musical journey from the depths of profound despair to ecstatic hope — a transcendent work, once experienced never forgotten.

Presented by Bleach* and Griffith University, in partnership with HOTA, Home of the Arts, by Opera Queensland, featuring the Queensland Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra
